    Official: Mets prediction thread

    Perez 18 wins Pedros first game back: perfect game and doesn't hit 90 on the radar gun.

    I'd have to say, on both your predictions I feel the polar opposite. Maybe 18 losses for Perez and Pedro prolly go 2 innings 6 runs on his game back.

    Mets beat out the Phils with 93W in the last weekend, beat LA again in WC round, lose to the Cubs in the NLCS who beat the Twins in the WS.

    Only 18 wins for Oliver Perez? I think he'll win at least 25. On a serious note, I picked Perez late in my fantasy draft where there's a nice payout so I'd love him to have a big year.

    I guess this is a good thread to post this:

    http://proxy.espn.go.com/chat/chatESPN?event_id=15145

    Jake (VA Beach): As if the one thing the Mets couldn't afford, we see lots of pitching struggles and now injuries. Can we just write off the Mets at this point?

    SportsNation rob neyer: I certainly wouldn't write them off; too many good hitters in the lineup. But right now the Mets look like an 84-win team, which isn't going to be enough in that division.

    Ralph New YAAAAAWWWKKK: Do you really think the mets pitching staff is that bad? I see two vets, and three young studs, two already proved they can pitch in the NY spotlight, and the other a thoroughbred who was drafted high. with that offense and that bullpen, WHATS THE PROBLEM?

    SportsNation rob neyer: Who said anything about "that bad"? Not me. But it's not going to be particularly good, and the Mets have a killer interleague schedule. They simply are not, as currently composed, a 90-win team.

    Great to see Neyer so down on the Mets. He had them losing to the Dodgers...and they won. Then had them beating St. Louis...and they lost. Thank you Rob Neyer!

    ESPN had the NL preview today. 6 of the 10 experts had the Mets taking the NL East. 3 of them in 2nd and Steve Phillips has them finishing in 3rd.

    I tend not to pay too much attention to stuff like that.

    Say what you want about the Mets rotation, but this time last year we were looking at a Potential Rotation involving Victor Zambrano, Steve Trachsel, and Brian Bannister, and had people like Jose Lima, Alay Soler and Jeremi Gonzalez make multiple starts for us and I can't think of anybody who would imply that what we have right now isn't better then that. And we ended up winning 97 Games despite that. People want to be naysayers and say that we can't win without better pitching, but we won last year with Worse Pitching then what we have right now.

    What we have to begin the season, will likely not be the same was what we have when we finish the season, as Pedro Martinez is expected back at some point, and the Mets have the ammunition to acquire a good starting pitcher at the deadline. And even if this is the rotation that we stick with throughout the year, John Maine looked like a very good #3 starter last year and could improve upon that, Mike Pelfrey is one of the top pitching prospects in all of baseball, and we all know Oliver Perez has a ton of potential. They could (And It's very likely that they will) suprise you.

    Omar failed us this year. Why does he think magic can happen again with this staff. I hate S. Green and P. Alou (too old and on down side). We will be forced to trade high quality prospects for a decent no. 1 starter.
    As a Met fan I hope I am wrong but we are asking too much of players that had career years (DeLuca and Valentin). This is one Met fan who is concerned....

But I tend to think that it was more of the impact of a good pitching coach, and that is something that should continue to happen.

    Did the 2006 Mets catch some luck? Sure. But they were still by far the best team in that Division.

    Predicting who will win a playoff series is pretty much just luck.
